Welcome from the Principal

Professor Sir Anton MuscatelliThis site gives a glimpse into the lives of our alumni, staff and wider community. It offers only a snapshot of the activities of the university over nearly six centuries - stories that are important to read and understand as we move forward as a diverse but united community.

The University's reputation and standing as one of the world's leading universities is built upon the work of those men and women who have studied, taught and undertaken pioneering research here. It is also built on the network of alumni, friends and partners who support the University's activities in all sorts of crucial ways. I hope you will find this site interesting and informative and that through its pages you will have the opportunity to relive the remarkable Glasgow Story which continues to this day.
